2009? Fort Hood? No?
Here’s a hint: Nidal Hasan was convicted of this crime less than a month ago…
Nothing jarring the ol’ melon, eh?
During today’s live coverage of the Washington Navy Yard shooting, CNN anchor Carol Costello actually had this exchange with her colleagues…
CAROL COSTELLO: I used to work in Washington, live in Washington. This seems so unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a U.S. military facility.
BRIAN TODD: Yes.
COSTELLO: Have you ever heard of it happening before, Brian?
TODD: I’m sorry, Carol. I missed that question. Could you repeat it please?
COSTELLO: I was just saying that this is so unusual, because this is such a heavily-secured military facility. I’ve worked in Washington for many years, I’ve never heard of such a thing happening.
Brian Todd gently reminded Costello of the Fort Hood shooting afterwards and provided cover by suggesting they were discussing in that particular area.
